It is settling into a rather chill winter here in Melbourne, so any sunshine has us unfurling like flowers to catch each ray. Even in the sun though, I can still feel the cold in my bones, so fingerless gloves keep me moving. I’ve no idea what stitch I used, apart from the rib at the base and top. It kind of just happened as I went along. I really like it though, with the little crosses in between the wobbly stripes of stockinette. I also loved avoiding seams. Time to make another, if I can.

More personal knitting, though I have been busy with other projects too. These hats are currently blocking on dinner plqtes. The lighter one is made with yarn hand dyed by Wired for Fibre, and the darker is by Hawthorne Cottage, which I found at a market in Daylesford. The pattern is Eleanor by Melissa La’barre and is available on Ravelry.
Was hoping to make matching fingerless mitts, but alas, not enough yarn. Perhaps I may experiment with some lace cuffs? The loveliness of the hand dyed yarns inspires me to have a go myself. I have dyed a little with Jelly crystals, but perhaps I will invest in proper dyes, and a swift for winding. Oh, the possibilities!
